Aaron Norris to Direct Stock-Car Racing Movie ‘Maximum Speed’
Aaron Norris will produce and direct “Maximum Speed,” the first in a planned franchise tapping into the global market for high-speed car action films such as the “Fast and Furious” movies.

“Maximum Speed” is aimed at taking advantage of the popularity of stock-car racing and the Western culture of bull-riding and honky-tonks. Pre-production will begin upon completion of funding, and filming is scheduled to begin in Texas Motor Speedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina in the mid-summer or early fall, based on track availability.

Joe Gibbs Racing and Petty Racing have been consulting on the film, assisting with locations, tracks, cars, props, corporate sponsors, and all elements related to the filming of stock-car racing.

Review: Nicholas Ray's “The Savage Innocents” (1960) Starring Anthony Quinn; Blu-ray Release From Olive Films

  • CinemaRetro
By Jeremy Carr

The beginning of Nicholas Ray’s The Savage Innocents—by no means the most typical or best film from this iconoclastic director—touts the ethnographic appeal of its Inuit focus. With debatable accuracy, the 1960 international coproduction illuminates, in somewhat superficial fashion, a “race of nomads” called “The Men.” The narrator says we call them Eskimos, individuals who live a life of ostensible simplicity “in the age of the atom bomb.” For a good portion of the movie, this is the basic premise, in terms of theme and (loose) narrative. It is a fictional, cursory study of a small and select segment of this Arctic population. On the outside looking in, there is a fundamental crudity in their behavior, their stilted English dialogue, their purity and naiveté, and the animalistic manners and utterances of main character Inuk (Anthony Quinn). But try as it might to make this all

The Savage Innocents

The original Quinn the Eskimo (no kidding) is another life-loving rough portrait from Anthony Quinn, in Nicholas Ray’s rather successful final spin as a writer-director. Despite some technical awkwardness, Ray’s sensitivity to outsider souls finds full expression. Humans don’t get any more ‘outside’ than Inuk, a primitive unequipped to deal with the modern world.

Jody Rosen’s Songs of the Week: Bob Dylan, Green Velvet, Eli Young Band, Angel Haze
Bob Dylan, “Pretty Saro”Reviewing Bob Dylan’s Self-Portrait in 1970, Greil Marcus unleashed the most famous lede in the history of rock criticism: “What is this shit?” I’ve been listening to The Bootleg Series Vol. 10 – Another Self Portrait (1969–1971), the new anthology that includes rarities, outtakes, live tracks, and a remastered version of the divisive original LP, and I’d amend Marcus somewhat: What isn’t this shit? Self-Portrait tosses a little of everything at the wall: traditional folk ballads, countrypolitan cornpone, “Blue Moon,” a Simon and Garfunkel cover, a Gordon Lightfoot cover, live recordings of “Like a Rolling Stone” and “The Mighty Quinn,” and more.Another Self-Portrait makes some sense of the zaniness with demos and early versions of several songs, and adds a whole slew of unreleased recordings, including some of the most graceful and moving Dylan performances you’ll hear.

Blade Runner screenwriter in talks to pen sequel for Ridley Scott

Thirty years after the release of Ridley Scott's sci-fi classic Blade Runner, the scribe behind the story is stepping back into its dystopian world.

Hampton Fancher is in talks to reunite with Scott to develop an original screenplay for a follow-up film, it was announced by Alcon co-founders and co-chief executive officers Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove.

The project - in the wake of Scott's return to the Alien universe with upcoming Prometheus - will be produced by Alcon Entertainment, Scott Free, and Bud Yorkin.

The filmmakers have revealed for the first time that the new movie will be a sequel taking place some years after the first film concluded.

Scott and Fancher had conceived of their 1982 classic as the first in a series of films incorporating the themes and characters featured in Philip K. Dick's novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, from which Blade Runner was adapted.

Original Blade Runner Screenwriter to Reteam with Ridley Scott for Sequel

With the release of Ridley Scott's Prometheus now less than a month away, we've got an update on an upcoming project that will allow him to revisit another one of his seminal early works. Last summer we were all shocked when it was announced that Scott had signed on to direct a new Blade Runner movie, although at the time it was unclear if it would end up being a sequel, prequel or just a spin-off. This week it has been confirmed that the movie is indeed a sequel, and one of the original film's screenwriters will be returning to help him continue the story. Unfortunately, it looks like the earlier rumours of Harrison Ford starring in the film are probably not accurate. They've got a new protagonist in mind and her name is not Rick Deckard. According to a press release from Warner Brothers, screenwriter Hampton Fancher is

Blade Runner sequel will reunite Ridley Scott with original screenplay writer

Director set to join forces again with writer Hampton Fancher as new film revealed to be sequel to 1982 classic with female lead

Ridley Scott's return to Blade Runner will be a sequel featuring a female protagonist, the veteran British director has confirmed. Alcon Entertainment, which owns the follow-up rights to the 1982 science fiction classic, announced in August that it had pulled off a coup by engaging the veteran British director to revisit one of his greatest triumphs, but it was unclear at the time what form the new film would take.

That uncertainty has now been dispelled, however, after Scott enlarged on an Alcon statement revealing that "the new story will take place some years after the first film concluded". "I started my first meetings on the Blade Runner sequel last week," the director told aceshowbiz.com. "We have a very good take on it. And we'll definitely be featuring a female protagonist.
